I am going to wait until next month to write on the presidential election for a number of reasons. One is due to the sudden rise of Donald Trump as a most serious contender for the GOP nominee. He is no longer a sideshow attraction. Another reason is the fact that most of the other GOP candidates seem to be either in shock, or in a state of confusion, over Trump’s early successes. The candidate I thought was almost a lock for the nominations, Jeb Bush, seems to be in a daze.
So I thought it best to wait and see how things play out over the next few weeks. I will say that Trump reminds me a great deal of a certain Alabama governor who had both the Republicans and Democrats in a “tizzy” back during the late 1960s and on into the 1970s. The message of Gov. George C. Wallace almost 50 years ago and the current message from The Donald are quite similar. Their campaigns were aimed at discontent amongst folks all over the country. I learned a long time ago that a large percentage of Americans vote against something, which can be a person – rather than voting for a candidate. That’s why negative campaigning still works and that’s most unfortunate.
